#503, Land gonna Land. You *might* be able to convince me that if you gave these two women the same haircut you could still tell them apart, but it would take a lot of convincing.

4th series #3/ Legacy #603. I don't mind Land as much when he's drawing men, although he still isn't my favorite.

Day 4 marks the last missing issue for me; no #4. So I get to start with #104 instead

#204. I'm not the biggest fan of Nightcrawler but I do kind of enjoy Arcade.

#304, 30th anniversary issue. 90s hologram! The next issue in the storyline is X-Men 25 when Magneto rips out Wolverine's adamantium.

#404. The bad guys that Banshee has been trying to work with finally turn and kill Sunpyre, a character that I entirely missed. It looks like she (Sunfire's sister) lasted an entire year since she first appeared in #392.

#504. If you're going to hire someone to do good girl/pretty lady art, the Dodsons are heads and shoulders above Land.

4th series #4/Legacy #604. I don't recall if it was this part specifically (I think it is), but part of this storyline involved a group trying to kill mutants with healing abilities because they found that especially 'unnatural'. I thought that was interesting because it struck me as kind of realistic.

I kick myself now and again for not grabbing stuff like that back then when I had the chance. Granted, I grabbed some really cool stuff for cheap, but I missed out on some of the stuff I really should have gotten.

Day 5 starts with #5, the second appearance of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Not a very realistic name; who would call themselves evil?

#105, Jean Grey feels her new Phoenix-powered oats by tangling with a herald of Galactus.

#205. It's a neat cover but it feels kind of wrong to me to have Wolverine in all the wires wearing his X-Men gear.

#305. When I started going back to fill in the holes in my collection I would look at people selling books in lots, and I feel like this cover was in bunches of them.

202 was one of the first X-Men comics I purchased as a kid. Something about it, not sure what. I always liked the cover, and the team fighting Sentinels. I would have to go back and reread it, but I admit I still buy NM copies of it (along with 205 & 268) when I am out and about comic shopping.

#405, Banshee's bad decisions come home when Mystique slits his throat. He doesn't die but can't use his powers for a bit. Banshee really had it pretty rough as an X-Man.

#505, a very Dodson-y cover.

4th series #5, Legacy #605. Magneto demonstrates what happens when he's the decision maker by wiping out a number of the Dark Riders.

Day 6 starts with #6. Again, who would sign up to be part of the "Evil Mutants"? Maybe it's just a tagline to make the comic exciting but in-story Namor thought he was joining the Boy Scouts.

#106, with what I consider a pretty cool cover.

#206, with again a nice cover. The Blob's outfit having the Freedom Force logo stands in contrast to Magneto and Namor a couple posts back. There would 100% be a group of bad guys who call themselves Freedom Force.

#306. Cameron Hodge is a jerk.

#406, giving away the reveal from the previous issue.

#506. In this storyline one of the many Trasks is leading a group called Humanity Now. This would also be a group's name if mutants existed, along with Friends of Humanity, but they would be more obvious bad guys than Freedom Force.

4th series #6, Legacy #606. Land still did the cover but Ken Lashley started doing interiors for a little bit here. I've been following Ken on Facebook since he was at Keystone Con a couple years ago; he's a pretty cool guy.

Day 7 starts with #7, second appearance of the Blob and first appearance of Cerebro. The team graduates and Cyclops is named leader while Prof. X heads out of town in the middle of the night.




I also have a 4.0 copy in my for-sale thread. It's been getting a lot of offers on eBay but not for as much as I'd like for it.

#107, commonly listed as the first appearance of the Starjammers although 3 of the 5 had appeared earlier (it's only really the first appearance of Hepzibah and Raza). It would more accurately be listed as the first appearance of the Imperial Guard, who I honestly think are cooler anyway.

#207 with an occasionally-swiped Wolverine cover.




And in newsstand

#307, part of the Bloodties crossover with the Avengers. Features an early appearance of Exodus.

#407, part of a storyline with the would-definitely-be-a-real-group Church of Humanity.

#507, listed as the first appearance of the X-Club even though most of them are in the previous issue. I guess they don't formally join the team until here. It wasn't really important in general but I kind of liked the science group.
